Aalesund attacker Edwin Gyasi has pledged his international future to Ghana, his father has revealed.

The 25-year-old, born in the Netherlands to Ghanaian parents, remains eligible to represent either nation at senior level.

“I can tell you that Edwin has decided to play for Ghana,” father of the winger J.Y Gyasi told SportsworldGhana .

“Although born in Amsterdam, Gyasi feels more Ghanaian and has informed the family of his intentions.

“He was approached some time ago that he could be invited to play for Holland since he was born here but I personally want him to play for Ghana and he has listened to my advice and is ready to do so when handed invitation by the Black Stars coach."

Gyasi has been targeted by several English Championship clubs. Germany's Stuttgart and Italy's Napoli have expressed an interest in Gyasi but the 25-year-old would prefer a move to England.

Gyasi has never played outside Holland but wants to test himself in England.

The attacker previously played for Telstar, De Graafschap, FC Twente and Heracles Almelo before joining Roda JC last summer.
